900lf 1100rf 200lr 175rr i think shocks are 75s and 94s.i have 53% left 54% rear 53% cross had brakes equal,it would go in and thru the middle but pushed a little comin out which would make me break em loose to get it to turn could pass cars comin out just wondering if i get it to come out harder.when the track takes rubber i can almost floor it with this set up.

Your numbers look about the same as my I-Stock. Are you using a brake bias valve? If you are, when the track goes dry-slick give yourself a little stagger in the front, crank in a little more front brake. One other "trick"...drag the brakes slightly through the corners until you are ready to hammer the throttle. This helps to keep the chassis loaded.

PUt a wheel on the left rear it will help off the corner yes you want the left heavy but not much heavier around 100 lbs if it's higher put a small tire on the left front and drop the air pressure on the tire scaling is a well big part of racing

How much stagger do you have in the car? It sounds like from what you have described that your car is actually too tight coming out. It seems to me like you might want to drop you bite just a touch. This would also let you drive in a little harder because of added side bite going in.
